Marcel Jeanjean was a famous illustrator of aviation stories of the early 20th century. He was the founder of La Jeunesse Nouvelle magazine, one of the first more serious French juvenile magazines that focused on education. In the early 1930s, Jeanjean illustrated 'Les Aventures de Tique et Toque' in Pierrot magazine, which was a Laurel & Hardy-like humor series. A pilot himself during World War I, Jeanjean's work is notable because it illustrates the early days of aviation. His most famous work is 'Sous les Cocardes', a collection of images about a squadron.
